WATCH: Dean Farris #3 Fastest 100 FR Performer All-Time


Making history yet again was Harvard’s Dean Farris, who won the 100 free in 40.80 on Saturday. The last time Harvard had a double-victor was in 1954 by David Hawkins. On Friday, Farris won the 100 back in the 2nd-fastest time in history.

Farris’ time now is the 7th-fastest time in history. Minnesota Gopher Bowe Becker just missed out-touching Farris in 40.83, now the 8th-fastest time in history. Both Farris and Becker are also the #3 and #4 performers in this event, with only Vlad Morozov and Caeleb Dressel being faster.

2 for 2??? Don’t you mean 2 for 3? Does the 50 not count?

Did it say 2 for 2? I think it just says double victor – but if you include his American Record in the 200 free which beat Seliskar’s top finish time, 3 fastest times in 3 events at NCAA’s!
